Holidays are here! Isn't it obvious????
I love the message of Christmas. I love knowing that the kids know that baby Jesus came to us and how God had always has a plan.
I don't like the absolute commercialism of it all.
I do like that my boys and my niece get it. Their Christmas list is not long. (Well, my second son's kind of is but he was being funny with all the Minecraft stuff.) I love using the technique from Emily and her FREE file for the kids' Christmas wish list. They get it. It's cool.
I don't like that Thanksgiving break was so late this year. It threw off my time schedule.
The break was pretty awesome though.
I am sure a lot of you all have a love/not like relationship with the holidays as well.

Here is my card:
To be honest, I like simpler cards for Christmas. Something I can replicate easily, which usually means no coloring of a stamp. I have done some Christmas cards that I have colored but it's usually just one or two cards that I make like that. I really liked how this turned out though, so I am making a few of them.
I am liking the look of the Spritz. Its kind of funny because I know that I am late the party on that product. I didn't want to buy any of it because I didn't think I would use it much. Of course when something is on sale...that's a different story. :-)
This is Say a Prayer. She was embossed on watercolor paper and colored with Twinkling H2Os. I added Stickles to her wings. I cut her out and added her to a piece of SU Pink Pirouette with Smooch Spritz in Cherry Ice.
